Abc reframe stamp

ABC shows are receiving praise for their diversity and inclusion!!

The Stamp is a mechanism to show us where the work of building a more inclusive industry is being done, and to celebrate the executives, producers, showrunners, creatives and department heads who are making that happen by building gender-balanced teams,” Andria Wilson Mirza, ReFrame’s Director said. “It also serves as a method for accountability. With this report, we’re sharing the studios’ current standing, and we invite them to set a goal of increasing the Stamps they earn year-over-year. Via Deadline.

4 ABC shows were stamped for the 2021-2022 season!

“Grey’s Anatomy” / ABC: Season 18

“The Rookie” / ABC: Season 4

“Station 19” / ABC: Season 4

“Abbott Elementary” / ABC: Season 1

These stats come from the fact that the majority of showrunners are men, and the majority of women showrunners are white. Of the 200 shows analyzed, 59 had a woman showrunner (29.5%). Of those shows, only 7 had a woman of color showrunner (3.5%).

Men directed the majority of episodes; many women directed multiple episodes. Of the 2008 episodes analyzed, 723 (36%) were directed by 293 women. 194 episodes (9.7%) were directed by 88 women of color.
